How many starters did you have in your Championship in the 1/8 Scale Class?
Seven drivers on this class. One CSC (mine) lapping a second faster per lap against OTO/ZH and other OTO based prototypes, till Fate placed a slower driver in front of me on one final (crash and second), blown tyre on other final and bad drivers behavior at podium stand on last final.
First final, check lap times of "coche 3"....
1/8 scale is so limited to central Spain, while 1/5 is the way to go at the mediterranean shore.
Hope this bike change their minds for a bigger competition next year.
About weight questions, current bike (1.8) scales up to 550gr race ready, and lacks of slightly high CG. This have been solved at the 3.8 designing a much lighter upper frame and giving plenty of room to install ESC and RX (micro) under the motor mount.
I feel the bike works due to its special geometry (F/R) and CG placement, allowing the use of higher gear ratios and decreasing inertias.
